0 Reviews
The present flag Australian was designed in 1901. This book provides an objective and balanced basis upon which you can answer the fundamental questions:Why does Australia have a flag? What flags and emblems has Australia had? Who has the legal power to decide whether or not the Australian flag needs to be changed and, if it does, who has the power to choose the new design? Everything is here, including an expansive selection of illustrations which range from topical cartoons through to colour reproductions of most of the Australian Flags (past, present and proposed), to enable you, the reader, to make up your own mind about the Great Flag Debate.
